Terrible bedside manor. Never communicated with patient or family, three days in a row. Completely unsatisfied with Dr.Pass as he decided not to do the bare minimum to communicate with the family or even ask the patient how he is doing. He acted like the family and patient was a waste of his time.

Dr. Pass asked all the right questions, listened to my answers and explained in detail the surgical procedure I was to have. He covered in detail what I was to expect from the day of the operation through the recovery period. He covered in detail the complications that I might expect from the possibility of death to a full uncomplicated recovery. I can recommend Dr. Pass without hesitation.
